CEO at Zivtech
Alex is responsible for all of the business functions at Zivtech--a Philadelphia-based, innovative Open Source Software company--from sales and marketing, to client relations, human resources, payroll, and business strategy. Alex has always had a knack for technology and a love for teaching it to non-technical users, and he has over fifteen years of professional technology experience. While attending The New School's Eugene Lang College, Alex taught himself how to administer Windows and Macintosh computers, which landed him a job as a systems and LAN administer for 7+ years, mostly for The New School's Parsons Fashion School. While working at Parsons, Alex obtained a second degree, got maried, and he lived through three summers of Project Runway. He started using Drupal during the 2004 presidential campaign while working with the youth outreach organization Music for America. Alex fell in love with the CMS because of its ease-of-use and remarkable search engine optimization (SEO) capabilities, and he's grateful every day for the opportunities that Drupal and the Drupal community have given him. You can often find Alex staring at one of his office fish tanks or starting trouble on twitter ( twitter.com/AlexU_A ), and you will always find him wearing a hat.
